they're nominated. that's part of the 24/7 news cycle. i think the caller is also right, president obama would like for all to stay. he prides stability. but it's a matter of these are hard jobs, people are going to want to leave. at the beginning of a second term is a good time to do that. in terms of history, president obama has inherited a difficult -- i think it was safe to say he inherited the worst economic situation since fdr. >> in terms of modern politics is there a president who has gone on known for having the least amount of cabinet turnover? >> there probably is but i don't know what the statistics are. in the old days it was pretty typical for cabinet members to lay over because the jobs weren't as challenging. but now with so much responsibility and the government being so big i think there's a lot more turnover. host: at some point does host: how does the process work in terms of saying i am going to stay on? guest: president obama has been bringing in cabinet members and high ranking officials talking to them about the second term. the person leading will tell president

turn around and embrace doing what is right, which is just doublespeak. you are saying the same thing -- even president obama inbox scripture -- invokes scripture. but on the platforms, on things like abortion. if i could make one statement about an earlier caller, that she cannot impose our own beliefs on others. that is ridiculous. we do it all the time. anytime you vote on an issue, such as slavery, would you say i did not believe in slavery but i cannot tell someone else they cannot own slaves? it is just an absurd viewpoint. i feel that, yes, it does and for my leaning toward one party over another. host: that was rich from tennessee. independent caller. switching from republican to independent. here it is the daily call our website what this had lied. -- crapo per "the new york times" story said he registered a blood alcohol content of 0.11%, the legal limit of va is 0.08%. mr. crapo, 61 years old. as a january 1 court date and inside "the new york times" a statement was given by the office. the senator said -- i made a mistake for which i apologize to my family and constituents

guess so. what you think of this maneuvering? caller: i think they should stop to the 250 as obama ran on. i also think that all income should be taxed the same, and the people who are doing capital gains should get taxed at the same right as rigid as everybody else. the key talking about class warfare and how we want to punish people that are making money. if it is punishment for them to pay a higher rate, that everybody else pays, then why is it not punishment for us? it seems like everybody is in the class warfare, thinking their class is better. host: have you been watching from the beginning? they did address capital gains and dividends, and what they did, according to this paper, is permanently increase tax rates to 20% from the 15% current rate port single people with income over for injured thousand dollars and couples over for injured $50,000. -- four hundred thousand dollars and couples over the four hundred $50,000. -- $400,000 and couples over the $450,000. caller: what makes them any better? income is income, whether you make from real estate, labor, actively working,

example right now and make a little compromise. -- maybe obama should lead by example right now and have compromised. what about a 10% flat tax? when not make everybody happy and flat tax everything? host: back to the telephones. caller: yes, they do not talk about the things -- you talk about taxes. what about taxing us on our wages? the supreme court voted against that. they do that -- in know, the poor people are getting poorer. the middle class is cut out. are either rich or you are poor. there is no middle class anymore. host: and that the wall street journal, their front page -- back to the telethons, panama city on the line for republicans. go ahead. caller: yes, good morning. i just wanted to say, we should be able to vote to congress out on no-confidence. we should have been no confidence bill to get them all out. >host: do you think that would work? caller: it would be better than what we have now. look at what it costs us per day. we are in a gridlock. it is causing tax payers millions of dollars. let's vote about and start over. host: what makes you think if they brought

some people on the far right, the idea that mitch mcconnell would make a deal with obama could be acceptable. you have 10 or more republican senators who say they are willing to do business with president obama in terms of approving an increase in the marginal tax rates. if that is the case, if you could get them to pass some kind of bill and then send it on to the house, and all boehner said was i will allow a vote, and you have democrats and some republicans feeling pressure joining in, you could get a bill done. host: rick is from massachusetts on our independent line. caller: good morning. i have a problem with the president. he is the most divisive individual who has come to power in this country for a long time. he completely denied his white relatives and blames all the problems on white men by buying the votes of the lower earners in this country by saying it is not your fault. he promised to bring this country to gather. what happened? guest: i am surprised. upper income people voted for president obama. what is clear and true is if you look at white men, white men are ov

" there's a shortage of of, especially in places like california, where 95% of the people are confined to about 5% of the state because of urban growth boundaries, is a shortage of places to build homes. when you drive on in the interstate freeway, you might see a lot of urban sprawl. if you get off the interstate, and we have a tremendous amount of open space and forests and farms in this country,
